Case Study: Palm VII Keypad............Next >

Palm VII KeypadCustomer: Clancy Systems International – Manufacturer and Supplier of Parking Ticket and Database accessories

Goals of Project: Rapid Design and Prototype

Project Time Period : 20 hr on Solidworks

Processes Used: 3D Modeling / 3D Scanning / 3D Printing

Software Used: Solidworks

Material for process: Clear Plastic

Process approach: Clancy Systems International again approached NECO to design their new keyboard interface for the Palm VII series. We approached the project by first reusing the previously designed keyboard and then just adapting it with a new interface for the Palm VII. At the same time the Palm VII was 3D scanned into a model. Next our design team combined the existing keyboard design, the newly designed adapter the 3D scan model in Solidworks to come up with a final design. Next the model was built using 3D Printing (SLA technology)

Alternate Process approach: This project could have been built using Powershape.
